Last Friday I also also went to an Egyptian dancing show held at the Italian Cultural Centre. We were preceded by several ambassadors’ Mercedes, resplendent with flags, which parked next to the theatre. We parked outside and after a security check took our places. The dancers were from Aswan and seemed a mix of Africa and Middle Eastern Egypt. Eventually I became mesmerized by the beat and dancing. Perhaps this video gives some impression. There were many Egytptians in front if us who understood everything and whooping at times, while I was most of the  time completeley  lost. Luckily we managed to avoid being dragged up at the end to join in the dancing, however some dignatories were not so lucky ! I guess such sacrifices are needed to improve diplomatic and cultural relations
